Model Cara Delevingne Just Made Fashion History

I spotted Storm model Cara Delevingne right after the DKNY show on an insanely cold, windy day during New York Fashion Week. She was laughing about having to hold down her hair for the exit shots – and I told her it’d be fun if she just let it go. She was such a good sport! It’s funny because the Burberry model looks so young and I expected her voice to match, but then a sultry British tone spilled out. Did you catch her black velvet Burberry dress at the Met Gala, punctuated by the studded gloves?

Cara just shot the first high-fashion photo shoot using Instagram, according to Yahoo. Directed by Nick Knight for SHOWstudio, the jewelry editorial was a tongue in chic take on internet memes and featured jewelry by Van Cleef and Arpels, Cartier and Solange Azagury-Partridge.

She has acting aspirations, so expect to see more of her as she heads to Hollywood, starting with a small role in Joe Wright’s adaptation of Anna Karenina.

Here’s the skinny. It’s almost summer and I still have a heap of cold weather shots from New York Fashion Week that I’d love to fold in over the next couple weeks before I’m wearing short shorts (not). I’ll still be incorporating shots of us mere mortals in cute outfits around New York City, so it’ll be interesting to see the high/low photo combos.

I cannot believe how different she looks in all of these pictures! A regular chameleon.

The candid shot of her hair blowing in the wind is characteristic of what I’ve come to love so much about this blog. Always giving a behind-the-scenes look into what seems to be such a pristine and no-nonsense world.

Love checking in daily.

Gabrielle! T

hanks for the note and Cara’s pretty funny. I really debated whether to show the windy shot, but decided it’s just part of an irreverence that is my life and a good ‘counterpoint’ of sorts.

I love behind the scenes so much, personally – and a lot more coming with you in mind. Thank you! Jerri xx
